Detectives’ interviews confirmed the pair had argued the day before the incident.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office said: "Through the investigation, Detectives learned that the roommates had an argument the day prior over a damaged microwave, reports the Mirror.

"During interviews Robert made statements about his involvement, indicating that he shot Everett while he was sleeping.”

According to the sheriff’s office the incident remains under investigation as police search for more witnesses.

The shooting comes just months after a man shot dead his work colleague in a company car park after she rejected his advances.

Michael Carpenter, 36, shot dead colleague Nicole Hammond, 28, on October 24 at around 6.59am in a parking lot on Lincoln Avenue Northeast in St. Cloud, Minnesota, US.

Colleagues told police Carpenter had made several unwanted attempts to date Ms Hammond over recent months but she rejected them.

The victim, according to phone logs, had sent messages to Mr Carpenter telling him she did not want him to "touch her" or "manipulate her".

She pleaded with him to "not make things uncomfortable at work."

Their employer claims none of these incidents were reported to the company.
